To deal with this issue, we must firstly understand the period we are experiencing. It was and still is a particular period never experienced before, because never (excluding the "Spanish" in the 20s) has the population found itself living in a lockdown system. I imagine that even for you who are reading, it was a dull period during which we had to stay, some alone and some with loved ones, closed inside our house. Unfortunately, many were unable to work while e others have switched to smart working.
And who is responsible for the communication of a company?
These people have worked hard, or rather 200%! That work was done online, from their computer, from home, from the kitchen or from the living room. Many companies have had to reinvent themselves by disrupting their work methodology and relationship with employees and also with customers. Every meeting has become "a call", every aperitif has become "a meeting" and every lesson has become "a webinar". The terms changed but in the end, what they wanted to do was continue their life and never stop.
And how did the Fashion Companies behave?
The Communication sector has kept companies alive as a sort of lifeblood (in this case perhaps it is better to call it "Vaccine"). "Hi there we are and we haven't stopped!", this was what every company showed: to continue to be there. Communication is the possibility for every company to get noticed, to certify its presence, and to be always on the front line on every issue.
And now that we are no longer in lockdown?
Everything has remained that way, communication will be more and more at the base of every company. Sometimes it is an industry that is underestimated but instead, it is indispensable.
And you? Would you like to be indispensable? Would you like to work in this sector?
